Busted Plug Plaza
The first U.S. Patent - on record - for a fire hydrant, Patent 909, was issued to John Jorden on September 8, 1838. We doubt he ever imagined his invention looking like this. In fact, neither did we, but that is what the Montgomery Martin Contractors team discovered just outside of the Federal Land Bank Building Multi-family and Loft redevelopment, currently under construction in Columbia, South Carolina.
